Welcome to Convention XXIX, hosted in Houston, Texas! As usual, Convention will be held on Memorial Day Weekend, on May 25th to May 27th, 2018. Please explore the website to find all the necessary information for registration, hotel booking, and airport information. This year's Convention is hosted by the International Board, and organized by our Programming Team. We hope to bring you another exciting weekend full of impactful education, enlightening seminars, as well as a chance to reconnect with brothers from across the globe.
This year's theme is Reframe and Reclaim. We will explore the roots of our traditions, from the days of the Founding Fathers, how we became an internationally recognized fraternity, and ultimately, to our present day and state of affairs. As the past decade may be a period in our history that is quickly becoming unknown to our newer members, it is integral that the future of our fraternity also understands and acknowledges its past. Only then can we move forward in establishing an impactful, and lasting legacy.
Tony Chao, Director of Programming
Billy Nguyen, Programming Coordinator
Jonathan Wong, Programming Coordinator
